Kindergarten students are having fun while staying fit with new flexible seating! They are burning more calories, using up excess energy, increasing motivation, creating a better oxygen flow to their brains, and improving their overall core strength and posture. #sa #sewickley #wersa #earlychildhood

Last week, the entire Middle School gathered in the Commons to watch the final round of our annual Geo Bee, a national competition that quizzes students on national and international geography. Congrats to all those who participated! #wersa #sa #sewickley #geobee
Early Childhood received an amazing surprise from Kodo Inspiring Exploration last week which was gifted by the Above and Beyond Committee of our Home and School Association. Our intriguing new STEAM-based materials inspire investigations into concepts such as force, momentum, gravity, speed, motion, and evaporation, and develop curricular connections and thinking about systems. The materials have already inspired students to ask how and why these new materials work and what they can do with them! Thank you, Home and School! #wersa #sa #sewickley #earlychildhoodeducation #stem #steam
